Bugger Off Boo Boys
OK, seriously… the booing of our own players needs to stop. I don’t care if they’re complete rubbish or a 2 time consecutive winner of the Fan’s Player of the Year. And the fact that there is no reasonable excuse for such childish and immature behavior only supports the point that it’s a useless gesture. Besides the fact that Frank Lampard is my favorite player, and that I’m a bit too connected to the issue, I can’t see a viable reason for booing a player on OUR side. After all the debate over goalkeepers, I don’t see anyone booing Robinson when he goes between the posts. I know I cringe every time the ball enters the penalty box (whether it’s a shot on goal or just a simple back pass). I shall desist my moaning now, but I think support of the entire team against Russia is important to the players and frankly, my sanity as well.
